Harpers Fishing Ponds, Double Locks, Exeter - Darts Farm, Topsham

Went in search of Penduline Tits reported at the Double Locks fishing ponds (west side of canal) on Saturday but not here today.  Instead found at least three Water Rail (possibly five present here). 

Darts farm had the Pen. Tits passing through earlier, so I missed again and had to settle with the Black Brant but my best photo of the bird yet. The white flanks and white 'necklace' meeting in the middle very conspicuous.
